Our Mother My Chau T. Ngo - Saint Anna
Our dearest mother My Chau, a loving mother of 4.
had she lived past this November 1st, she would have turned 64.
The best grandmother to 5, when she was still alive.
Such a beautiful women, both inside and out.
God knows this is true, many have witnessed her goodness, no doubt!
Mom worked so hard to provide for us, all that we'd need.
Though once we were poor - mom and dad... taught us never to greed.
To love each other whole heartedly, care for each other, and always put God first.
Even when we're angry, sad and down
or when we're at our worst.
Though mom didn't have much, she gave us her world and all,
She's a living testament of "rising up when you fall".
Mom was the ultimate grandmother, she was always there.
Attending to her kids and grandchildren, her own lifestyle, she didn't care.
She literally lived out of her car, because she didn't want us to be in despair.
Mom, prior to this, didn't have the time to create that special bond with God,
Not until she encountered this hardship did she have time to pause.
For everyday's work and grind, was always on her mind.
She was always working extra, to provide for her family in Vietnam, so that they would all be fine.
When we asked you "Mom" to retire early, we didn't think it would be this way,
Stage 4 Lung Cancer, it wasn't fair.... But God became very present... more so, each dear and passing day.
During her last two years of life, she asked our lord for Mercy everyday.
At 3 am and 3 pm, The Divine Mercy Chaplet she would pray.
She advocated for our Lord Jesus Christ, in the best way that she knows.
Mom encouraged many to pray the Divine mercy, to reprimand and save all souls.
In her last dying days, Mom prayed to Jesus, to please take her into his heart,
the only place she longed to be, forever and to never part.
We're glad that mom's fighting journey has finally come to an end.
To the heavens above, we pray, for her precious soul to ascend.
To explain the complexity of this woman, would take a very long time,
To remember her simply, just remember she was kind.
Though our hearts still hurt, and the weary is heavy,
We thank you all with deepest sincerity,
for attending this Mass today.
Praise to our Lord God, Jesus Christ, and to our beloved Mother Mary.
